Microsoft Finalizes Roll-Out of New Dynamics Partner Standards, Prepares ERP VARs for the Cloud Economy
With the restructuring of standards in the Microsoft Partner Network, Dynamics-focused partners know they are going to work harder for gold certification in terms of sales, testing, and industry expertise. But even hard work won't be enough for some partners, especially those who simply don't have the right footprint in terms of talent.
"In the old program, seventy-five percent of partners could be gold," said Doug Kennedy, Microsoft's vice president for Dynamics partners. "Hopefully we will see it flip upside down. It should go from over seventy five to twenty five percent over time."
